“The last 100 days has been very bumpy and challenging. It has been a case of so far, so bumpy, but so good. Everyday we work 24 hours to ensure that we do not disappoint you. We have resolved that we must do that to make you happy and proud.”

“We have lunched a campaign to restore our homeland. Most people can attest that the grave insecurity is gradually being contained and we remain undaunted. Even as I speak to you now, something is going on in various communities in Anambra State.

“This administration is built on five pillars, our first pillar is security, law and order. We have created a new ministry, the Ministry of Homeland affairs, which has also unveiled the security and emergency crack team. We have embarked upon mobilization, sensitization and worked with clergy men and others to mobilize the people against insecurity.

“The people are united in fighting against the lucrative criminal enterprise and idolatrous acts. The criminals have been exposed and our people are leading the fight and changing the narrative. We declared war on them and government is determined to deal with it.
“It took years for criminality to take root, and we have a long way to ensure we stop it. No bushes, forest or home will accommodate criminals in Anambra,” Soludo stressed.
